Jacob House Standards & Procedures

ACCOUNTABILITY : Each resident is accountable for his own actions, words, and daily behavior towards the staff and residents. Blaming others and justifying a negative response is inexcusable and unacceptable. Make sure someone knows where you are at all times. You must leave each Church Service with an intern from the Jacob House unless otherwise instructed.

APPLYING YOURSELF : This is your program. How much you receive from this program will depend mostly on YOU! We believe God can change your life and we are here to help you. It is very important that YOU apply yourself fully to get the most for your future success.

ATTITUDES : Maintaining a positive Christ like attitude is essential to your progress in the program. Learning to respond to others with respect, patience, consideration and love will demonstrate your desire to really change and grow. Forgiveness, confessing your faults to GOD and others should be a daily occurrence. Even when others may seem to approach you in the wrong manner; maintaining your attitude is important and dealing with the person accordingly will cause growth in you. A refusal to change a negative attitudes such as; prison mentality, rebellion against authority, unwillingness to accept teaching, unwillingness to be submissive, ungratefulness, and stubbornness will affect you and jeopardize your stay in the program as well as your future. Proverbs 28:13 says "He who covers his sins shall not prosper: but whosoever forsaketh them shall have mercy. Proverbs 29:1 emphasizes, "He, that being reproved (corrected) hardenth his neck shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy."
